For the fifth consecutive year, the CJHS will introduce Jewish middle schoolers to genealogy with the intention of stimulating their interest in where they came from and who they are!
During the Thanksgiving holiday season, seventh and eighth graders at: Congregation Beth Tikvah, Temple Beth Shalom, Temple Israel and Congregation Tifereth Israel will have a special “homework” assignment. They will be asked to talk to their relatives, especially the elders, about their families’ origins and stories. They will come to religious school, hopefully with their parents, on December 3rd or 10th, depending on the school, to participate in Genealogy Super Sunday. During each session, CJHS facilitators will encourage the students to share family photos, keepsakes, documents, and other family memorabilia that they have collected. Sounds like fun? Definitely!
The genealogy committee is seeking a few interested CJHS members to observe one of these sessions for a firsthand look at this important effort by the genealogy committee. You might even catch the genealogy bug yourself. Contact CJHS by phone at 614-238-6977 or e-mail us at email@example.com for more information and to sign up as an observer.
